The Cleveland Cavaliers might be in hot water after their latest loss. The Golden State Warriors are not — in more ways than one.
After defeating the Cavs 118-108 at Quicken Loans Arena on Monday night, several Warriors players complained about the lack of hot water in the visiting locker room’s showers, according to ESPN.com’s Chris Haynes.
Kevin Durant apparently was the most vocal critic, shouting a message to LeBron James and the Cavs that reporters in the locker room all heard.
Haynes later added that Golden State’s players didn’t actually seem angry and found the situation humorous more than anything.
The Warriors aren’t the first NBA team to face the nightmare scenario of a cold shower, though, as visiting locker rooms often are in much worse condition than their home counterparts. Just last spring, then-Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade revealed there was no hot water in the visiting showers at TD Garden after a loss to the Boston Celtics in their first-round NBA playoff matchup.
The Dubs probably wouldn’t trade a warm shower to be in the Cavs’ plight, though: Cleveland has lost eight of its last 10 games to fall 7 1/2 games behind the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics.
